DIY Cereal Box Drawer Dividers

DIY Cereal Box Drawer Dividers
Home Office month is in full swing! And it's not just about the papers. And paper piles. And filing. And paying bills. It's also about the area you do your work within. My desk is pretty neat and tidy and I have been really happy with how the organization has held up over the last year plus, however, there was one drawer.... It used to look nice and lovely! But then one day, I decided I would rather use the acrylic dividers in my vanity for a fun project, and that I would address the desk drawer at a later date. Eeek! Thank goodness for this month's challenge, because I am beyond words smitten with the outcome of my little drawer organizing project. Pretty papers, {both wrapping and decorative cardstock}, regular tape and double-sided, pencil, scissors, box cutter and a yard stick. Over the last couple of weeks, I have been collecting leftover food boxes such as those from cereal, waffles and granola bars. Then, using the box cutter, I cut the boxes! All done! Love polka-dot. Anywho. Related:  tips and tricksCreatememory boxes

Oh Snap! Snapguide is the Ultimate How-To App Let’s be honest: we live in a “how-to” world these days. Both the Internet and traditional media have enabled us all to more easily pass along ideas and instructions for new ways to do things. In fact, these days, we’re able to learn about how to do things everywhere from the Food Network to Brit + Co. :) And today, there’s another tool that has launched that makes it even easier for doers and makers to learn how to do anything. It’s called Snapguide, and it’s a super simple way to create and share “how-to” guides from your phone. I’ve been playing with Snapguide for a couple weeks now (I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek before the launch) and have been extremely impressed. I used the app this morning to make a guide about How To Use Snapguide. As a DIY publisher myself, I think these kinds of tools can only help spread knowledge and information to more people. Download the app and check it out for yourself.

Like a Saturday » Blog Archive » DIY Small Ironing Table Hello there! I hope your week has gotten off to a great start. Things are definitely looking up since it’s a short week! My mom had this old TV tray table, and was going to put it in the donate pile. I flipped it over and gave it a couple of coats of white spray paint. Once the paint was dry and cured, I carried the table into the house to upholster the top. I had some batting on hand, so I layed that out and trimmed it so that there was about an inch of overhang on each side. I pulled it taught and went after it with the staple gun until it was snug and secure. Once the batting was in place, I did the same thing with a new piece of fabric. Voila! It doesn’t take up much room at all, but can easily be folded and put out of the way if needed. I love repurposing things to give them new life. Have you repurposed anything lately? Have a great Tuesday!

Cross-Stitch Your Own iPhone Case Yesterday, I wrote about JackBacks, a customized, wooden back for your iPhone. While digging around the Internet and scouring iPhone covers, I also found one more that caught my eye. It’s from a design studio called Purl Soho (which is now bookmarked in my “Craft” folder) and is an iPhone case that you can cross-stitch yourself, enabling you to be crafty and geeky at once. Fitting both the iPhone 4 and 4S and costing only $25, I purchased a couple: one for myself, and one as a gift for a friend. The kit comes with thread as well as a booklet with design ideas. My one concern is that the case is too bulky (I actually really dislike iPhone cases in general due to the bulk), but I’m willing to take the risk.

Aunt Peaches: Washi Tape Shelf Edging Here’s a simple something worth a lookyloo. Washi Tape. It’s my thing. It’s like…Hey, I’m Washi Tape. High strung Japanese teenagers use me to make school supplies look cool. Now you can use me to seal your envelopes and the utility company will think you are all cutting edge like that. I use washi tape on all sorts of stuff around the house. Decided I liked the living room set-up so much, I took it to the pantry. The tape I used in the living room was new and super sticky, but the stuff in the pantry was a little older and dried out, so I dabbed some white glue here and there just to make sure it stays in place. Yeah, washi tape. PS Cool new website: Washi Tape Crafts.

Project - A Beautiful Mess A couple weeks ago, I found a paint-by-number at an unbeatable price. I can't pass these things up even though I already owned this particular design. I thought that I could maybe use it to make a fun D.I.Y., but my new rule is that all thrifts that I purchase with the intent of restyling need to get done right away. I have way too many half finished projects in my life. Here's how I did it... I displayed our piece in our bedroom, on Jeremy's side of the bed.
